What to do with paper scraps?

Someone once called me "queen of scraps", because I'm pretty good at using all those little leftover papers. I don't throw anything away when it comes to scrapbook papers.

Here are some different layouts where I used only scraps paper. Some of them are a little bit older and not very good, but just ignore that. I just want you to get some ideas for using all those small left over pieces.

Cut out CIRCLES ( by hand, with punches or a die cut machine)

Circles in a row:


Circles in clusters:

And then we have STRIPS.

Vertical strips:

Weaved strips:

Horizontal strips:

Tiny strips:

SQUARES are perfect for scraps. Here are first some with rounded corners:

Overlapping squares:

Color blocking:


So dig out that scraps box and do a little frugal scrapbooking today!:)

Pin It!
